    Well except maybe for a bipod and a better scope.

    I started placing orders way back in jan, feb and with back orders and such it took a while to get the parts, I got the lower in mid march, I spent the summer in Mass the upper was delivered in early june to my parents house (my anti-mother had no clue what was in the box from Jon at "WOA")

    This thread about the lower is here

    the only good picture I have of it as a complete rifle.

    Details:
    Anvil Arms Lower with A2 stock and LPK
    WOA Flattop upper Wylde chamber, 26" 1:7
    Scope: Some cheap gear guide scope I had laying around.

    Haven't gotten her to a range to get her zeroed yet, maybe this coming weekend :x:

    scope looks really weird mounted that far back. I would give myself scope eye if I tried to mount it.

    yeah it was a quick hookup job for the photo, I'm going to tinker with it a bit later in the week and get everything squared away and get a rough idea of zero with a laser bore sight. I just quickly set it up for WMD, nothing is even finger tight. As it is now its almost impossible to get 2 fingers on the charging handle.

    Jesus Christ if you kept missing our target you could just reach out and beat them to death with that huge barrel, lol.

    It looks awesome. I am interested on how accurate it is with that barrel. :coold:

    You know, you only have to shoot the gophers. Not reach out and sodomize them.

    You might could get away with lower scope rings as well.

    I don't know if anyone has noticed, but does the barrel seem a little long? Maybe it's just me.

    depends on what you're doing with the rifle.

    is it for home defense? then yes, it does seem a little long.
    is it for precision shooting? then no, it doesn't seem a little long.

    Actually, I wonder where .223/5.56 powder burnout happens....I mean, a long barrel is great for extra velocity, until you reach the "crossover" point where barrel friction is greater than thrust from powder gases.
    I just don't know where that generally is on AR's.

    I guess that'd depend on the powder used, but I swear I read it happened around 15" somewhere. :dunno:

    Depends on load, twist rate of barrel etc. Generally it is believed that the 223 maxes out at 26" of barrel. It gains 50% of it've velocity in the 1st 7" of barrel, then 75% of it's velocity at 15", then the remainder out to 24" -26".

    Working backwards 24" -26" barrel going to 15" you or lose 40 - 30 FPS per inch
